Hi everyone

Just wanted to ask how you all stay positive? I always thought I was a happy optimistic strong person and that I could cope with anything because the thought of having a baby to call my own in the end would be worth it. Having been trying for about 5 years, 5 rounds of Clomid and a recent lap drilling I'm starting to waver a bit. Appear sad all the time and finding it difficult to remain positive when we keep getting knock backs.

DH is very supporative but just keeps saying everything will work out. His favourite phrase is "we will have a baby soon" which is sweet but also very frustrating as soon doesn't seem to be coming...

Ivr tried everything I can think of, I've joined a pole da cise class spent one on one time with hubby gone out taken the dogs on walks visited the in laws and my rents...
How do we keep positive?

We go on the 'brooking no argument' thread here. It's a mixed bunch but most of us have been ttc for a while (cycle 19 for me). The positivity really does pay off. We've got lots of bfps (there's even a graduate thread!) but it's the mindset that's kept me going. It's usually quote funny too.grin. Do think about joining us.
The other thing I do is try something new each cycle!

Ttcing is so tedious! It was a HUGE relief to go for IVF, it felt like we were really getting somewhere. The clinic I went to (Argc) deals often in complex last-resort cases where people have failed elsewhere and yet the doc who treated me said they got most women there in the end. I agonised over cost, stats etc but felt that doing this was a whole lot more likely to get us a baby than what we'd been doing. 3 years later we have 3 boys!
I don't know your story or how old you are, but given the right approach, most people do get there in the end!
